Planting for Butterflies


Jane Moore


Butterflies are brilliant pollinators and add vibrancy and colour to the garden. A summer's day wouldn't be the same without the gentle fluttering of delicate wings. They connect us with living and breathing nature and are an essential part of a dynamic ecosystem. However, in the past forty years, these insects, which were once a common sight in our gardens, are now in decline thanks to habit loss, climate change and the use of pesticides. 

But do not despair – there is a lot you can do to help improve their numbers! Planting for Butterflies will show you how you can attract these beautiful insects and help them to flourish by creating a butterfly-friendly garden. No matter how small or large your space – from a window ledge in the city to a country garden – Jane Moore offers advice on the nectar-rich blooms to grow, and when and where to plant them.

This charmingly illustrated, practical guide will set your garden a flutter. 

In a horticultural career spanning 30 years, Jane Moore has been head gardener at a Benedictine Abbey, a writer for national gardening magazines and newspapers, a researcher on BBC gardening programmes and a presenter on BBC TV's Gardeners' World. Gardening, and writing about gardening, have encompassed Jane's whole career. She has wide-ranging practical experience, an astonishingly broad plant knowledge and an unswerving enthusiasm for gardens, horticulture and its impact on everyday life.
